Recent news of the Google Toolbar hijacking 404 pages got me a bit curious. Are people still using toolbars until now? I guess the obvious answer is yes.

Obviously all these toolbar fanaticism is driven by only two things — ad money and spying data gathering.

So, what toolbars are installed in your browser and why are they in there?

  • Google Toolbar
  • Yahoo! Toolbar
  • MSN Toolbar
  • Ask Jeeves
  • Alexa Toolbar
  • DAP
  • eBay
  • Teoma
  • Stumble Upon
  • Netcraft
  • ESPN Toolbar
  • NBA Scoreboard
  • Skype Toolbar
  • ICQ
  • Neopet
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Dictionary.com Toolbar
  • MySpace
  • Alta Vista
  • WindowsLive

Oh, there’s tons of them on the list. I just notice I had the Google and Stumble Upon toolbar and yet I don’t use them.

I have Google Toolbar and Stumble Upon. Been using those two since it first came out, and use both regularly.

Other than that, I also have Yoono and the WebDeveloper toolbar.

This is for Firefox 2 btw. Waiting for these toolbars to be compatible with Firefox 3.

My screen is low enough as it is, but I do have stumbleupon and google, which gives me a translator, autolink and PR. I do have other toolbars on the options section.

I only have the StumbleUpon toolbar which I use once in a while. :D

If you have toolbars on your browser without you installing them yourself, it came with a program that you installed. Next time, make sure to read first before installing a program.

Nada. I like having clutter-free browsers.

I use Google toolbar on Firefox mainly for the one-click gmail button, sometimes I also use the Image and News search buttons when I’m a bit lazy.

Other toolbars have been banished because they are not only useless and hog system resources, they also eat up screen space.

I am always against any toolbars. Mostly it slows down my connection (I still use dial-up). But there is one toolbar that I have permitted in on my firefox browser – the one from workabroad.ph because they had no RSS feed.
